DENVER (AP) — A Colorado man who replaced labels on dozens of Gatorade bottles with an image of Tiger Woods and his wife and the word “unfaithful” has pleaded guilty in an agreement with prosecutors that calls for probation.
Jason Kay pleaded guilty Friday to the misdemeanor charge of mislabeling a food product in federal court in Denver.
Kay’s attorney, Paul McCormick, says his client’s crime was that when he replaced the bottles with Tiger Woods’ picture, he put mango Gatorade labels on some orange Gatorade bottles.
Prosecutors say dozens of the bottles with the replaced labels were found in Safeway and King Soopers stores around Colorado. McCormick says 11 of the bottles had the incorrect flavor label.
Prosecutors are recommending that Kay be sentenced to three years of probation on May 3.
